Lose Weight With Fruit

Weight Loss With FruitsThe human body can only function well if provided with proper and sufficient nutrients, vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates. Natural foods are undoubtedly the best source of all that a human body needs. A correct balance of each nutrient will keep a person healthy always. Generally a person’s health is diagnosed by his weight in proportion to his height. Going below or above the average weight can cause health problems for a person. But sadly it so happens sometimes that people realize such facts when it’s already too late. Unhealthy eating or sometimes hormonal factors can cause excess weight or the exact opposite. In both cases the good news is that it is reversible. A person can trim down or gain up body weight and become healthy.

The more common problem is an excess gain of weight. There are many tried and tested ways to lose weight. Mostly all of them work too, but what some diets are missing is the correct balance of all the vital elements which can cause certain deficiencies or imbalance of nutrients.

Fruits are one of the healthiest foods known to mankind. There is no substitute to fruit and no side effects either. Though previously fruits due to its high sugar content weren’t consider a good option in a weight loss diet but studies have proved now that the sugar is not as harmful and the other beneficial nutrients in fruits make it a far better choice as compared to other foods. Below are a few fruits suggested by experts that can help lose weight and stay on the healthy side as well.

Strawberry.
Strawberries stimulate your metabolism, suppress your appetite and control blood sugar thus help in your weight loss plan. One cup of strawberries is loaded with vitamin C, three grams of fiber, and some calcium, magnesium and potassium and only 49 calories. They slow the rate of digestion of starchy foods which helps control the rise in blood sugar that usually follow a starchy meal. This benefits those with type 2 diabetes. Strawberries also help weight reducing hormones to function properly.

Berries.
Berries are full of anti oxidants, vitamin C, fiber and folate. Berries work to protect the cell damage preventing pre mature aging, health of collagen, lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, boost metabolism and reduce blood sugar. All these benefits eventually help to lose weight. Berries are excellent source of fiber and each gram of fiber eliminates seven calories so a recommended daily 25 to 30 grams of berries can really help in the long run.

Avocado.
Though not a low calorie fruit but still it has too many other benefits that cannot be ignored. It enhances your metabolism; is a major factor in prevention of weight gain and diabetes, aids in absorption of fat soluble vitamins and antioxidants and many other significant benefits. When it comes to weight loss, this is one fruit that you need more of rather than cutting it down. The way nutrients are better absorbed by the body because of avocados it helps in reducing hunger and all the nutritional goodness increases satiety.

Grapefruit.
Grapefruit is a low calorie fruit that does not have the ability to burn fat. But at the same time grapefruit can help you lose weight. It offers a lot of nutrients for few calories. Eating half a grapefruit before each meal can help you lose a pound a week. It’s an excellent source of protein and it’s at least 90% water. This fills you up so you eat less at the table.

Having named a few fruits above does not mean that others are any less healthy. Fruit is always a better substitute when it comes to snacking. Though other fruits might not be as low fat but they are definitely better than a chocolate bar or a pack of chips. An apple or a banana can be carried to work or anywhere else u need to be long enough to feel hungry. Also adding a fruit salad or a fruit accompaniment with your meal can help in eating less fatty food and fill you up with healthy nutrients instead. It all comes down to making the right choice.
